Finger Paint

Mix 1/4 cup cornstarch with 2 cups of cold water in a saucepan. Boil the mixture until it thickens. Pour into several individual containers and add several drops of food coloring.

Play Dough

Mix 1 Cup Flour, 1/3 Cup Salt, 1 Cup Water, 1 Tbs. Vegetable Oil, 2 t. Cream of Tarter, and Food Coloring (the more the brighter) in a pan and cook over low heat until it begins to form a ball (2-3 minutes).  Knead on countertop until mixture has good form.  When cool, store in airtight container.  Fun to play with!  Harmless to eat!

Apple Pizzas

Take a biscuit from a tube of refrigerated biscuit dough. Flatten into a "pancake shape" and place on a greased cookie sheet. Place a dot of butter on the dough. Next, put about 3-4 apple slices on the dough. Sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon on the apples. Bake at 400 for 5-8 minutes.

Honey Butter Balls

1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup dry milk
1 1/2 cups rice crispies

Mix all together and then roll into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in coconut, chocolate chips, or rice crispies.

Bubbles and Bubble Wands

Bubble solution is 10 cups water to 4 cups dish-washing liquid, plus 1 cup Karo corn syrup.

For large wands, you’ll want plastic-coated wire coat hangers and plastic-coated chicken wire or floral netting. Hold the hook at the top of the hanger, and pull the bottom down so that it forms a circle. Cut away the hook and twisted neck of the hanger with wire cutters. You should have about a 31-inch length of wire. With needle-nose pliers, twist a tiny hook into one end of the wire. Bend that end around, and hook it on the wire about 9 inches from the opposite end, forming a 7-inch-diameter circle. Squeeze the hook with pliers to fasten, and straighten the end to form a handle. Cut an 8-inch-diameter circle of floral netting. With pliers, fold the netting’s edge tightly around the frame, snipping off any sharp ends.
